1 Accept plan modifications, as is, and go to referendum.
2 Scrap the whole plan
3 Accept some but not all the mods (Preferred option)
HDC is prepared to make changes but as a rule wanted to try and accept as many of the examiners recommendations as possible, otherwise the Plan might have to be re-examined with the risk a new examiner doesn't pass it.
In summary, the main issues are:
1 HDC do want to see numbers for sites. They will word numbers as "at least..." which gives a 10% tolerance
2 They want us to review the allocation on Hayes Lane as 15 is too low and we should review our rationale.
3 They do support the Examiners suggestion to remove the scout hut from Crosby farm. They do recommend we beef up the Cobblers to include the scout hut explicitly.
4 They support the removal of End of Westway as a site and the consequent removal of the Central fields as Local Green Space. They will reference in their explanations that Central Fields will be picked up in a forthcoming Conservation area review and they have prioritised Slinfold.
The process hereon is HDC publishes its explanation of the modifications and holds another 6 week consultation. then 5 weeks later they make their decision to either go to referendum or go for re-examination.
